If your home relies on hard water, you’ll inevitably run into hard water stains. These stains are made up of minerals found in hard water, with some of the most common being lime, silica, and calcium. Tackling these stains as part of your house cleaning routine can seem difficult, but there’s a simple and effective solution that’s probably already sitting in your cupboard: white vinegar.

Vinegar is one of the most effective and versatile house cleaning products available, and it’s perfect for removing hard water stains. So long as you also have rubber gloves, a spray bottle, a cloth, and a spare toothbrush, you’ll have no trouble getting rid of the hard water stains in your home.

Follow these simple tips from the house cleaning pros at Maid Right® to quickly and effectively fight hard water stains around your house.

HOW TO CLEAN HARD WATER STAINS
To clean hard water stains, you’ll want to create a mixture of water and vinegar. Throw on a pair of rubber gloves and combine vinegar and water in a spray bottle, using a roughly 50:50 mixture. This mixture is safe to use anywhere in your home (though you should keep it away from hardwood surfaces, since the acid in the vinegar can damage hardwood finishes).

Simply spray the vinegar and water mixture anywhere you find hard water stains, then let it sit for 5-15 minutes. This gives the mixture a chance to break down the minerals in the stain. Once enough time has passed, use your toothbrush to scrub away the stain. You can also use a larger bristle brush or a non-scratch abrasive sponge in place of a toothbrush for larger stains. Once the stain has been completely scrubbed away, use a wet cloth to wipe the surface clean.
